Wild About You! Tales from the Australian Rock Undergound 1963-68 [leda030]


Published
Topics Garage Rock


Bloodied noses! Car crashes! Police harassment! Jealous boyfriends! These were just a few of the hazards that faced the beat groups who roamed Australia during the mid-sixties. Despite these obstacles (perhaps because of them) a number of homegrown acts came to epitomise the down and dirty sound of the Antipodean underground.

Released in 2004 by Melbourne Community Radio Station 3CR, the book (by Iain McIntyre and Ian D Marks) and accompanying tribute CD (featuring 19 of Melbourne's toppest contemporary groups doing covers of the most classic retro-stompwise slopp) quickly sold out.

The Ledatape Organisation is overstoked beyond all comprehension to re-present the tunes from the disc. Freeeeeeee!

Subject: excellent compilation
the tracks on this compilation are excellent. works very nicely these days, with psych rock & roll having been reestablished and fused with other musical styles. i highly recommend this collection.

Reviewer: Simon Strong - - December 27, 2005
Subject: Top comp of eons old slop
My group (the Pink Stainless Tail) is on this so I'm kinda partisan but I gottas say for my wedge I rate this comp mostest. If ya want the originals you probly gotta go to the ole comp entitled 'ugly things'(on raven records) as a good starting point - an even better the first time. But this is here now for free. NB Our tune (TimeWillCome) was remixed for our commercial release (qv www.pinkstainless.net).
